MyThIc3LiTe For those wondering where exactly to get their stuff from, use the retrofit source.

Pick whichever bulb size you need, select the CANBUS relays, and you'll be good to use.

They also carry Morimoto H1/D2S mini projectors should you want to go all out with a retrofit.

So I purposely aimed my projectors high so I could actually use the 6 settings.
Interesting. That, to me, doesn't sound like it would be a very useful feature for 99% of the time then for those without projectors.

I can definitely see why they didn't give it to Americans, as it would add to the cost and we would never use it! Though it could be considered the "lazy-man's" way to change the light level, so that certainly has America written all over it.

We also don't get the light level adjustment controls near the headlight switch.
